|Is a bird, is an airplane, it is not Superman...Is a dolphin!!!!|
Had a long day and just recently came back to the villa. I promise this one will be short, at least in terms of my descriptive narrative. Long story short: Woke up to another ugly day in Sanibel Island. Gray and windy. Not good to be out. Wifey and I had some breakfast and she asked me to take her to the lighthouse and at 10:30 we made it there. Walked around until made it to the fishing pier, where we stayed for an hour shooting pics of a dolphin trio swimming in the area and a few birds waiting for an easy meal from the fishermen on and around the pier. We were on our way out when my wife saw something that changed our day and possibly made our vacation. Anyways, that is it. No more talking. Let us go to the pics...

|Magnificent Frigate Bird|
|Triple threat...Reddish Egret, Snowy Egret, and Brown Pelican|
Then we were caught in the middle of the fight and I took some pics of it...
|Round #1: Snowy Egret #1(SW1) attacks Snowy Egret #2(SW2)|
|Round #3 was fierce. A terrific battle with both SWs looking for the victorious strike|
|Round 6 - SW1 started to dominate the combat with some nice aerial attacks|
|Round 9 - SW2 reacts and tries a counter attack|
|Round 10 - SW2 connects its best punch of the fight|
|SW1 resists all SW2 threw at it and wins when SW2 leaves the arena, literally, saying NO MAAAAAAS!!!!|
